Fact? There was a GD fact?
I guess adding 60 billion in revenues is a waste of time but lets defund planned parenthood & Big Bird. I much did that save?
You right whiners get GD dumber eery GD day.
The Republicans grew government the last time they held the White House.
They increased Spending.
What will Mitt Romney cut? Do we know?
Or is it part of the Great Mitt Romney Plan: After he takes office, he gets with Republicans & Democrats, sit around the campfire, sing Kumbaya, & magically figure out how to do the crap Romney says he will do.
Romney has no plan. NONE ZERO ZILCH.
The only thing we know he will cut is Planned Parenthood and PBS. We don't know a single loophole he will close or a single deduction he will eliminate.
A penny saved is a penny earned.

I want you to go home and repeat that one thousand times.

Big Bird won't be putting his pecker into the public trough anymore.

Planned Parenthood doesn't need public funds. It has very, very significant private funds.

Government grows when the country becomes engaged in a global war, like the war the Arab muslims started with the United States when they murdered 3000 people.
Government should retract when the war ends. Considering Obama has surrendered Iraq and Afghanistan to the muslim terrorists, the war is ended. Time to cut the government back.
However, Obama didn't end the war by ending it. He surrendered. The Arab terrorist threat is still there, has taken control of more countries than it controlled prior to 9/11/2001, and only an idiot thinks they won't attack us again.
Can't defend the United States, pay the debt the Democrats created, and pay Obama's base to not work at the same time.
Let's see.... who to cut?.... hmmmmmmmm.
How about we cut off support to the people who choose to not become educated and not work?
That sounds like a good idea to me.
If they want something, let them work for it like every other goddam person in the country.
Nobody gets everything they want. The more you study and work, the more you get of what you want.
How about that for some hopey - changey stuff?

And in case you forgot, liberals "consistently attacked" Bush for EVERYTHING he did.
Once again Gunner lies.

After 9-11, Democrats stood behind Bush. They supported his action up until they realized they were lied to with the Iraq war.

When we were informed of the financial crisis in Sept. of 2008, it was the Demi0ctats that stood with Bush while the Republicans played politics.

Obama walked in the door in another crisis & the f*cking lowlife POS Republicans played politics. They purposefully wanted people to suffer rather than help us recover.

Paul lying POS Ryan was part of that.

NEW YORK, Oct 29 (Reuters)- The supply of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel into the U.S. East Coast ground almost to a halt on Monday as Hurricane Sandy forced the closure of two-thirds of the region's refineries, its biggest pipeline, and most major ports.

Benchmark New York harbor gasoline futures jumped as much as 11 cents a gallon, with traders fearing that power outages and flooding could leave refiners struggling to restore operations after the broadest storm ever to hit the United States.

So, you would have done the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and you're stupid enough to expect a different outcome?

It didn't matter where we went. The Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us. The only thing we could do was choose the place.
How about we just kill more than one bird with one stone, huh?

Bush did it differently that the Soviets. That's why the Soviets lost and Bush won.
Mission accomplished.))))))))

But, please tell us why you think we could have done the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets and not experienced the exact same thing the Soviets experienced.....

<quoted text> Mere hypothetical horse pucky, it is far more likely that an Obama drone will hit them. Let's face it, Obama kills innocent civilians with drones overseas and drives them into poverty here in the US. Not a very nice man.
Not a very honest man, because in Fort hood: diversity rules

What do you call it when a self-proclaimed “Soldier of Allah” shouting “Allahu Akhbar” opens fire on dozens of US citizens — killing and maiming as many innocents as he can?

You call it terrorism, if you’re sane.

And “workplace violence,” if you’re the Obama administration.

That’s right: Three years after Nidal Malik Hasan’s jihadist shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in which he murdered 13 people and wounded 29 more, the Defense Department still refuses to classify the attack as what it is: an act of terror.

Instead, it continues to label the shooting officially a case of “workplace violence.”

This isn’t just a question of linguistics; avoiding the terror designation means victims and their families “do not get combat-related special compensation that provides disability pay,” reports the military news site Stars and Stripes.

Which is why survivors and families of those killed released a video this month asking Obama & Co. to do right by the troops — and classify the attack as terrorism.

Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, featured in the film, was shot six times but denied benefits that would accrue to a soldier injured in an act of terror or a battle overseas.

Fellow victims at Fort Hood “were killed and wounded by ... somebody who was there that day to kill soldiers, to prevent them from deploying,” says Manning.

“And if that’s not an act of war, an act of terrorism, I don’t know what is.”

Precisely. And there’s a paper trail a mile long that proves Manning’s point.

Before the bloody day, Hasan had defended suicide bombings and told fellow soldiers that Muslim service members would be justified in killing US troops.

Was he reported? Nope. Try promoted.

(So much for his being a disgruntled worker.)

The FBI even knew of Hasan’s communications with Anwar al-Awlaki, then one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, in which Hasan asked about carrying out jihad against the United States.

Yet in President Obama’s remarks at a memorial service for Fort Hood’s fallen, he never used the word terrorism. Not once.

Why is the administration trying to rewrite history? Comments by the Army’s chief of staff at the time, Gen. George Casey, might offer clues:“As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”

There was an effort, that is, to dismiss Islamist terror — and not offend Muslims.

It is better in Obama's administration to deny heroes and their families all of the benefits and honors they are due.

Obama needs to rectify the situation.

In 2009, he said that, for “families who have lost a loved one, no words can fill the void that’s been left.” Which may be true.

But at least he can correct the record, call the massacre at Fort Hood by its true name — terror — and accord a proper measure of respect to troops who’ve been denied it these three long years.

It’s past time to act.

Clinton & Republican Congress = balanced budget & surplus

Thanks to Republicans in Congress, but mostly thanks to the dot-com boom that was allowed to happen by the new technologies developed in the Reagan years.(If you noticed, we didn't get any new technologies from the scoundrels Obama gave money to. All we got was the money disappeared and the companies went bankrupt.)

Bush & basically the same Congress = Debt & deficit.

Thanks to the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring a global war on the United States.
However, even while fighting a war, the Republicans turned over to the Democrats all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, with a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars; which the Democrats have exploded since the deficit ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT and more than trippled the debt to over 16 trillion dollars. This was largely due to an economic collapse caused by the Democrats' subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.

Paul lying POS Ryan voted to expand government.
Paul lying POS Ruyan voted to double the GD debt.

... really....
Obama is burned toast in a week. Get out the fire hoses.

What city does Obama's base plan to burn when Obama loses?
Do you think they'll burn Washington down?
You know that hasn't been done since a foreign invading army did it in 1812.
Is Obama's base as bad for the United States as an invading army?
